Ulli, PAT67, michiel and 6 others like this!

this is just an animation, taking the hieroglyphic characters I had created
for a my Windows translation program.
The idea is to create a font, only with the main characters and use it in BluffTitler.

Franco, if you have Alphabix, maybe in first time you can create a bitmap font (easier to create)

yes Vincent I was thinking of using Alphabix. The problem that these graphics had the yellow background instead would be nice to be transparent to use them where you want, so I think I have to redo everything.

My program was done in Visual Basic and was a true Egyptian-Italian (and viceversa) dictionary. A friend of Zahi Hawass also took it, because it was possible to use it to insert your terms in the language you wanted. I took 5 years to do it from 1994 to 1999

I don't use Photoshop but i suppose it is possible to select yellow background with magic wand tool then invert selection to select all except background , and paste the selection in an empty transparent pic. Off course it is quite a lot of work because you must repeat this process for each symbol. With VB net or other language it would be possible to automate the process for all pic of o folder (batch processing)

Yes Vincent, I would like to redesign it better in vector to make it more beautiful.
In the meantime I created this alphabix, but how do vertical spacing?

Note that these hieroglyphs have a single sound and for that they are used to our letters, they are called uniliterals. Other hieroglyphs can have 2 - 3 - 4 sounds and therefore have no correspondence.
In reality, therefore, the unilith hieroglyphics were used to write foreign names to the Egyptians, such as the names of the Roman emperors.
The Egyptian grammar includes words, verbs, adjectives like a normal language and these are written with more hieroglyphs. There is also the use of many ideograms as determinative at the end of words.
